Brand New CPA Has a Serious Dilemma

From the mailbag:

Does GC have any suggestions of where to get a frame for my brand-new CPA wall certificate? I searched the site, but if you’ve covered this before I must have missed it.

I appreciate the feedback! Thanks!


Perhaps our reader is referring to this post we did back in July where the reader was impatiently waiting for his certificates so he could decorate his cubicle walls.

Obviously we have a completely different issue here but it’s no less important. So let’s throw a few ideas out there:

1. Make like a Son of Nazareth and build the thing yourself.

2. Hand the certificate over to your young son/daughter/niece/nephew along with a box of Crayolas and hope for the best.

3. Two words: Dumpster diving.

4. Your ideas.
